Together with our donors, BCIT Foundation helps to ensure today’s students develop the skills and experience they need to be tomorrow’s innovators, creators, and leaders.

Your generosity will enable BCIT to fund the following priority areas:

  • Infrastructure renewal to further BCIT’s reputation as a leading educational institution
  • Access to and affordability of education to help ease the financial burden some of our students may face
  • Excellence in teaching so our students receive the hands-on, leading-edge education for which BCIT is known.
